Managing IP has recognized WilmerHale as the US Patent Contentious Firm of the Year for the fourth consecutive year. At its Annual North American Awards Ceremony held at the Willard InterContinental in DC on March 25, the firm was not only honored as the Patent Contentious Firm of the Year—both nationally and in the northeast—but was also named the Copyright Firm of the Year in the northeast, and recognized for its role in three Milestone Cases of the Year: Medtronic v. Boston Scientific, Bowman v. Monsanto and Authors Guild v. Google. In addition to these outstanding practice-level recognitions, Bill Lee was named as Massachusetts IP Litigator of the Year and Seth Waxman as DC IP Litigator of the Year—each earning this title for the third year in a row.
Managing IP's North America Awards are the conclusion of more than six months of analysis by its team of researchers, who conduct hundreds of interviews with IP practitioners and IP owners in North America. More information on these awards can be found by visiting the Managing IP site.
